    You haven't given us any context, but I can tell you that in my world it means that I'm going to get into a bath.
    It could specifically refer to a hot tub or spa bath.

    It means "go and get into the bath". "Go and do something" is a common colloquialism. It's mainly Americans who leave out the "and".
